Matthews and the Bucks have agreed to terms on a contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Matthews is coming off of an up-and-down year split between three franchises, but he'll enter a much more stable environment in Milwaukee, where he'll help fill the void left by Malcolm Brogdon's departure. There's a chance Matthews could start, but he'll likely settle into a slightly reduced role after averaging 30-plus minutes per game in every season since 2010, but he could still be a source of three-pointers. The Madison, Wis. native and Marquette product has averaged 6.6 three-point attempts per game over the last five seasons.
Matthews (toe) participated in Friday's practice and will play in Game 1 against the Celtics on Sunday, J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star reports. There was never any real concern regarding Matthews' sore right toe that kept him out of Wednesday's regular season finale, but full participation in Friday's practice confirms that the shooting guard is 100 percent for the postseason. He should be a full go come Sunday.
Matthews is listed as out for Wednesday's regular season finale against the Hawks due to a sore right toe. The injury likely isn't anything serious, as the Pacers appear to just be giving Matthews the night off to rest before the start of postseason play. Tyreke Evans will likely re-enter the starting lineup Wednesday in Matthews' absence.
Matthews (hamstring) will play Friday against the Celtics, Jay King of The Athletic reports. It will be just a two-game absence for Matthews, as he's set to return Friday. He'll presumably re-join the starting five.
Matthews (hamstring) is a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Celtics. Matthews, encouragingly, went through Thursday's practice. If he ends up available Friday, he'll presumably take back his starting spot from Tyreke Evans.
